So what’s with all the restaurant movement in Rockmart? In recent days, we’ve heard that:

-The former Sonic Drive-In will soon give way to Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen.
-The recent arrivals of Captain D’s, Chick-fil-A, Martin’s Restaurant and Jefferson’s.
And now comes Spice Street Grill at 108 E. Church St., opening Tuesday in the former home of Slate Market Grill. There’s a pretty good buzz already on Facebook about this one and the reason is the posted menu. In addition to some of the classics, here are a few that will open some eyes: Goober Burger (half pound of Angus beef with spiced Street peanut sauce), barbecue featuring Melba Q sauce, Jalapeno shrimp bites and blackeyed pea Hummus.
